With the 2020 MLB season officially in the books, FanDuel Sportsbook has already released odds to win the 2021 World Series for every team.

Even heading into the offseason with some uncertainty, the Chicago Cubs' odds are straight-up disrespectful.

At +3000, the Cubs are tied for only the 12th-best odds in the majors. If we're looking at those odds as an implied probability, they're saying the Cubs have just a 3.2% chance to win the World Series.

The Cubs' 34 wins were the fourth-most in the National League in the shortened regular season before they were upset in the Wild Card round as the No. 3 seed.

Will all of the Cubs' 2020 starters be back? Probably not, but this team still has enough talent to remain poised as a contender in 2021, especially if they can make a couple key additions in the offseason.
